Magnificent … a beautiful look at the unsung heroes of the trade. --It's Nice That
A gem - an impressive academic achievement, packed full of stories ... there's so much to enjoy in this book, starting with its actual design ... this repository of visual material adds up to an inspirational sourcebook. But unlike many other beautifully illustrated publications, you will want to do more than just look at the pictures - you will want to read it --V&A Magazine
Elegant ... the book's glory lies in the stunning illustrations ... readers may have a tough time not drooling --The World of Interiors
Chock-full of nearly 800 illustrations of engraved frontispieces and title pages, handbills, posters, catalogues, type specimens, pamphlets, advertisements and product labels. --Creative Review
Excellent... a colourful cornucopia of visual and technical extravagance... For any student of the history of art and design, David Jury's book is thesis material of a pretty high order... [the reader] is skilfully immersed in a wealth of delightful and fully-captioned examples of fine printing... fascinating and memorable. --The Birmingham Post

the job title "Graphic Designer" was part of the job market landscape. A beautifully-
presented overview of Graphic Design styles and Trends from
early days. Many of the outmoded products being advertised here
are outlandish and hilarious by today's standards.
